Resveratrol Supplement Benefits Brand Owners Should Know About!
Derived from red grapes, resveratrol is a plant compound with antioxidant-like properties. Apart from grapes, this compound is also present in foods such as pistachios, peanuts, red and white wine, blueberries, and cranberries; while the plant known as Japanese Knotweed serves as the natural source of resveratrol for the majority of dietary supplements ore. Several people are known to use resveratrol as a health-boosting supplement, with research linking this compound to benefits like improved heart, skin, brain, and overall health. This article explores resveratrol’s health benefits as a dietary supplement and how supplement brand owners can tap into its market potential.
What is Resveratrol and How Does It Work?
Resveratrol is a type of natural phenol made by several plants in response to injury or attack by pathogens. Resveratrol helps provide protection to the plants due, at least in part, to its demonstrated antioxidant properties. These antioxidant properties benefit humans too, as shown in research where resveratrol provided a direct antioxidant effect against free radicals, and facilitated an increase in vitamin E—another powerful antioxidant.[i]
To answer another question, “what does resveratrol do for the human body?”, in addition to its antioxidant properties, it also helps activate the SIRT 1 gene, associated with longevity. But there are other benefits as well.[ii]
What Are the Benefits of Resveratrol?
The numerous benefits that resveratrol provides drive its increasing demand in the supplement market. Let’s dig a little deep to understand what you can offer your consumers as a brand owner.
Resveratrol for skin:
As we age, the body loses a lot of natural collagen and elastin, and the skin experiences thinning. Resveratrol has shown the ability to help reduce the visible signs of aging. Resveratrol’s antioxidant benefits help provide protect against accelerated aging effects caused due to free radical damage. Resveratrol may produce a two-fold effect:
- By neutralizing free radicals
- Boosting antioxidant levels
This two-fold effect has been shown to help the skin better defend and repair itself – revealing its anti-aging properties and thus providing benefits that include:
Environmental skin protection: The skin goes through several environmental factors, including the damage caused by the sun and pollution. Resveratrol has been found to help protect the skin from the damage caused by UV rays and help reduce pigmentation.
Redness: Resveratrol may also help minimize skin redness and provide calming properties.
Dryness: Resveratrol may demonstrate hydrating effects if consumed as a dietary supplement.
Roughness: Resveratrol can also help improve skin texture, helping reduce roughness.[iii]
Resveratrol for blood pressure:
Resveratrol has antioxidant properties, which make it promising for helping to promote healthy blood pressure levels already within a normal range. This was demonstrated in a 2015 review suggesting that resveratrol offered this benefit.[iv]
Other benefits of resveratrol:
Resveratrol supplements can also support a healthy heart, liver, and overall well-being when accompanied by a good diet and exercise.
Several studies also show that the supplementation with resveratrol also helps promote healthy cognitive function, improving aspects of memory.[v] Furthermore, research has also shown that exercise added to resveratrol supplementation increased the number of mitochondria, and improved muscle fatigue resistance more than placebo and exercise treatments.
Last, but certainly not least, Resveratrol can increase certain circulating immune cells known as gamma delta T cells. Human research[vi] was conducted to assess the effects of repeated doses of resveratrol (1000 mg/day for 28 days) on circulating immune cells in healthy individuals. The results were that resveratrol was safe and well tolerated and was associated with significant increases in the numbers of circulating gamma delta T cells (functioning as the first line of defense and a bridge between innate and adaptive responses) and regulatory T cells.
